POISON (4).png




by Lot Vekemans

Following a critically acclaimed run in New York and London, GEST are delighted to present Poison by Dutch writer Lot Vekemans in this English translation by Rina Vergano.


Two separate voices, two emotional lives and one shared story.


Alone in a room, He and She meet again face to face for the first time in years.


Poison is an extraordinary play that asks a simple question:


Is it ever possible to move on?

For this production we are looking for artists who want to exhibit artworks on the themes within the play Poison.


But, for some guidance to help you understand the themes you can use for your artwork, see below:

Poison - Synopis

A man and a woman
Who’ve lost a child
Who first lost a child
And then... each other
Or maybe I should say:
Who first lost a child,
then themselves and then each other’

Themes - Examples

Grief & Loss

Separation & Reconnection

Memories & the Past

Environmental Decay & Renewal

Emotional Healing

Life & Death

Hope & Despair

The artworks can be wall art or installations. You can also submit sound or light works.

We are open to the size and number of works and will select the ones we think will fit well together in the gallery space.

The exhibition will be displayed at the same time as the run of the play. The run is from 8th November to 7th December.

During this period, we will also have drama courses for adults in the Gallery, so unfortunately we can not accept sculptures or artwork taking up floor space.

However, we gladly welcome artworks hanging from the ceiling, walls or other types of installation ideas!

We have 4 big white walls and 2 smaller walls in the Foyer Gallery. You can find sizes below (length x height)

Wall 1:
560 x 331 cm

Wall 2:
460 x 331 cm

Wall 3:

580 x 331 cm

Wall 4:
